Keep Newnan Beautiful cancels cleanup event

by Staff Reports - news@newnan.com

The Saturday, March 29, Great American Cleanup event that was scheduled by Keep Newnan Beautiful has been canceled.

“In considering participant safety and as a result of current and forecasted inclement weather, the Keep Newnan Beautiful program has decided to cancel this year’s event,” said Carol Duffey, Keep Newnan Beautiful director.

“We encourage you and your team of volunteers to consider hosting a cleanup event prior to May 31, 2014,” she said to those who planned to participate. “The Keep Newnan Beautiful program will provide supplies (gloves, litter grabbers, collection bags, reflective vests, etc.) to all groups interested in hosting a cleanup. If you elect to host a cleanup, please record the number of volunteers, date of cleanup, number of trash bags collected and consider taking a few photos,” she added.

“It is our hope that the Keep Newnan Beautiful program will host a celebratory event in June to thank all of our volunteer partners as well as to report on the total amount of litter collected,” Duffey said. “Thank you again for all that you do! You are a great example and inspiration to many residents in our community,” she said to volunteers. “In addition, your participation in our program continues to have a positive impact and I am thankful for all of your support.” Anyone with questions may contact Duffey at 770-253-8283, extension 1.
